Review by Greger
4 stars Inside the CD-booklet you can read that "This record is the final release by PHILHARMONIE. What a shame, especially as this is a really exciting album with great all-instrumental compositions, performed by three technically good musicians. The music that is based on guitars is a mixture of Progressive rock and RIO. There are reminiscences to KING CRIMSON and SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA / VON ZAMLA.

The album has very high-class compositions, and there's not a weak track. The production and the sound quality are also top notch.

The band disbanded in October 1997, and this fifth and final album was recorded between March and August, 1998 at Studio 26, Antibes, France, and it is a great way of saying good-bye to their audience. Recommended!

5 stars A truly marvelous album that deserves the attention of anyone interested in rock fusion played with aplomb. Unclassifiable and deeply ensconced in stellar musicianship, these fellas don't mess around, demonstrating the wonderful possibilities of the fusion format seasoned with modern minimalism and slight Fripperrifics. One of the finest bands to emerge from France in the 90s, perhaps ever, Philharmonie's swan song comes with my highest recommendation and it is truly a shame they've parted.
